OUTDOOR NEWS: Birch Lake provides ‘fabulous’ fishing just outside BWCAW

March 24, 2017: Can you believe that Birch Lake and River Point Resort were featured in Outdoor News?

Turns out our fishing on Birch Lake is pretty newsworthy?

Here’s some of what Outdoor News has to say: “Birch is full of walleyes that have continued to build in numbers through natural reproductions. the lake hasn’t been stocked with walleyes since 2002, but it doesn’t need to be”, according to Jef Eibler, DNR assistant fisheries supervisor in Tower.

Eibler says the most recent assessment of Birch lake, conducted in 2015, produced more than 13 walleyes per net, which was up from the previous survey in 2012. The lake has a reputation for producing eating-size walleyes, as well as trophy-caliber fish.”   Read Full Article Adjacent

Birch Lake has long been considered a premier Minnesota walleye fishing lake with its 20-miles of virtually undeveloped wilderness shoreline offering little fishing pressure–unlike other area lakes–plus, a myriad of rocky points, bays, inlets, and islands to fish.

From a recent fishing population report in the Timberjay Newspaper of Ely, Minnesota:

“It’s not a small lake-7,074 acres-but it (Birch Lake) has a bunch of 1- to 2- pounds, roughly three times the state average…Minneapolis Star Tribune: “The Deadly Dozen (Minnesota) Walleye Lakes…Read More>

Noteworthy, is the influence of the fresh spring water flowing southward directly from the Boundary Waters Canoe Area via the South Kawishiwi River (River Point’s east shoreline) into Birch Lake. This natural waterway out of the BWCA offers some great rapids fishing and steady, but gentle current action, giving this northern Minnesota walleye fishing resort some of the best Minnesota walleye fishing around.

Some of the best fishing lies right by River Point’s strategic location where the two bodies of water join. Minnesota walleye fishing resorts superior choice is River Point Resort®.
